Exploring the Capacity of Tourism Activities for Indigenous Heritage Sites
 Supervisors: Dr. Taha Rashidi, Dr Tay Koo, A/Prof Reubin Bolt
Summary: Tourism and Indigenous communities have separate and often conflicting concerns regarding tourism activities on traditional lands. To appropriately unlock the potential of tourism requires in-depth understanding of both perspectives. This research aims to develop a new and eclectic set of capabilities for building sustainable tourism development in Indigenous heritage sites. A mathematical system of models of tourist flow and spending in Indigenous heritage sites will be developed. You will be part of an interdisciplinary team across Engineering, Science and Nura Gili that will attempt to formalise aspects of the multifaceted, spatial and temporal tourist choices and their inter-relations using activity-based modelling at a national scale.

Best regards,

On behalf of the supervisory team
